Cherry Blossom Motif 3 (LHO 12)

The distraction tatting is done. I did not have any more of the cream thread so I used the pink which is a different size and brand. I think it works although it still makes me uneasy.

Pandora Bracelet of the Week 16

This bracelet is the oxidized silver bracelet with silver clasp. 
From left is the winter wonderland clip (14K), luminous hearts charm (14K), fluttering butterflies charm,  luminous florals pendant, moss charm (14K), luminous florals charm and another winter wonderland clip (14K).

I wanted to combine the mother of pearl charms and the oxidized charms and bracelet. I love the combination. I stacked it with the freshwater pearl and black spinel stretchy bracelet.

Vietnamese Rolls

Sometimes I get a craving for these rolls. Found these at a coffee shop in Teck Whye. Also had the grilled pork in a baguette. It was a satisfying lunch last Saturday.

The roadside plants were topped up with fresh compost and mushrooms sprouted. Love that texture on the caps. It has been raining a lot with plenty of thunder and lightning.

Cherry Blossom Motif 1 (LHO 11)

I needed a distraction from WIOSNA 2018. A fast to tat motif. This is a pattern from Lee Hye-oon's Lovely Tatting Doilies for Spring and Summer on page 25. What will it evolve to?

Pandora Bracelet of the Week 15

The Pandora Essence Silver Bracelet with Pandora Rose Essence Love makes a family, Pandora Rose Cute Bunny, Pandora Essence Affection and the Pandora Rose Regal Key. If you like a lightweight bracelet with few charms, I would recommend the Essence bracelet. The Essence charms comes fitted with silicone so once you slide them into position on the bracelet, it should not move around too much. I love it because you forget you have a bracelet on. I prefer the round charms to the button/medallion shaped ones (for Essence) because the latter sometimes flip/roll. I also like to place small charms or dangles from the regular collection in between Essence charms.

This is the Pandora Rose Cute Bunny. It is a small charm and it looked dwarfed among my other charms but on the Essence bracelet, the size is just right. The same goes with the Pandora Rose Regal Key.

Pretty Cakes

Yesterday was Deepavali. This cake at the supermarket counter was decorated just for this occasion. That is a simple oil lamp on the top of the cake.

Another is this rangoli inspired cake. We saw a few rangoli at the shopping mall last weekend.
